I’ll agree with you in the “stranger” part. My best friend and military buddy and I have rode together for 20yrs. We can anticipate each other’s movements and in THAT situation I’m comfortable.When they try to share the lane with me rather than stagger. I do not like a stranger riding right next to me at speed.
Sometimes if I need to ride but have zero destination in mind, I'm able to do a part of my business using my bike so I can go out and make $. Otherwise I generally just pick a direction and head that way and try to find the best south, east or... has to offer. I'm drawn to water so typically I'll end up riding around multiple of our 12,000 lakes or down the Mississippi River.When I go for a ride I often have no destination in mind, just going down whatever road I feel like taking. I set off last week thinking I might take a ride to the shore (about 20 miles) and I ended up going to another province and putting on 150 miles. - the complete freedom of setting out without any specific destination in mind is a strong pull too.
Amen! Some of the best rides I’ve had started with “I wonder where this road goes?” and then just exploring it.^ ditto
when I get tired I sleep, when I get hungry I eat, when I gotta go... you know... I went.
I just feel like riding.
Its amazing what you find out there when you are not looking for anything in particular.
I watched the video several times - they are all riding like idiots! WTH?!I don't like to ride in large groups, here is a video where Jay Leno was almost taken out in a group ride crash.
